Ryan won’t debate, challenger claims



Published: Tue, October 5, 2010 @ 4:51 p.m.

Jim Graham, the Republican candidate for the 17th Congressional District, said today the incumbent won’t debate him.

“As far as I’m concerned, they’re ducking us,” Graham said of U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th. “I don’t know if my opponent wants to debate me in public.”

In a prepared statement, Hanna Kassis, Ryan’s campaign manager, said: “Congressman Ryan has appeared at numerous public events and has already accepted several invitations to public candidate forums to detail his positions on local, regional and national issues.”

Ex-U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr., running as an independent, would also be invited to participate in the debates, Graham said.
